We hatched a variety of eggs over the last few months but our main aim was to end up with a Speckled Sussex cockerel. That may well happen but at the moment our two favourite young cockerels are Australorp Shelia
Up until a month ago we had not seen a single House Sparrow on our patch. Coming up through the farm we would see them every time dust bathing on the track – but not up here. Now they are here in numbers
(I know this picture only shows a number of one – but believe me) The question is – will they now always be here or is it a seasonal thing?
